As previously reported, Jill announced the news in a family statement on her official website, revealing that her husband passed away on Saturday surrounded by his family.

“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer,” the family said in a statement. :There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”

In addition to Jill, 54, Bobby is survived by his children—David Zarin, 41, Jennifer Zarin, 38, Jonathan Zarin, 35, and 25-year-old stepdaughter Ally Shapiro.

Bobby, a real estate developer and founder of Zarin Fabrics, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009, then underwent radioactive iodine treatment and had his thyroid removed. In 2013, doctors discovered that the cancer had spread to his lungs. He underwent more treatment. In November 2016, Jill revealed Bobby had a cancerous brain tumor.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jill and the rest of the Zarin family during this difficult time.
